Mr. Al Campbell founded Iowa Neon Sign Company. Iowa Neon produced all types of signs while specializing in elaborate theater marquees. In this era before plastics, neon was the exclusive medium for illuminated signs explaining the wide range of customers using this medium. Nevertheless, they produced all types of signs including a prototype sign for General Motors. Iowa Neon soon prospered and became the undisputed leader of the industry in central Iowa.
Mr. Forrest R. Cox founded Cox Neon. Similar to Iowa Neon Sign Company, the majority of their business was in custom neon lit signs.
Mr. John Paul incorporated Quick Sign. John had worked at Iowa Neon for a number of years then split off to start up his own sign business. Typical sign types included neon signage as well as various cabinet signs with plastic faces.
In 1977 Quick Sign purchased the assets of Iowa Neon Sign Company, thus inheriting many customers and years of experience. The following year, Quick Sign was acquired by a group of three investors with Mr. Randy Kinzer as President.
In 1979, in an effort to establish the sign company as one of strength and stability, the name was changed to Eagle Sign & Advertising Co. The new name reflected a new direction for the company as it began to focus on doing business with regional and national corporate accounts and producing high quality sign products. Eagle Sign acquired Cox Neon in 1980, which had a number of established and loyal customers in the Des Moines area and beyond.
Ron Duitsman joined Randy Kinzer as co-owner of Eagle Sign & Advertising Co., a management team that over saw the largest growth of the company since it's beginning.
By this time, nearly all of Eagle’s business had become regional or national in scope, and most of the signs produced were being shipped out of state. A few of the national companies Eagle has worked with over the years are Cat Scales, Best Buy, Country Kitchen, Western Auto, Maurices, Taco John's, Charley's Grilled Subs and Cenex/Land O’ Lakes.
